Airbnb on your Apple Watch makes travel planning easier

The World Around You
September 3, 2015

When it comes to making arrangements for your vacation rental, finding a spot can be difficult. But, with Airbnb you can explore cities all over the world. Released for Apple Watch today, Sept. 3, this app takes your communications with hosts and guests to your wrist for added convenience.

Apple Watch features

Hosts can now receive requests for bookings right on their watch. You can receive the guest’s name, requested dates, a message, and even their photo. Using voice dictation, responding to guest’s messages just got easier. On the flip side, guests can message their hosts right back with a tap.

Airbnb Apple WatchFrom Isaac Lim, Airbnb engineer:

The Airbnb Apple Watch app was not designed to replace or mirror the main iOS app. It is a messaging hub – a means to help hosts respond to their guests more quickly, and for guests to get notified of important events. With rich, interactive notifications, hosts can accept a booking request right from their wrist.
